Lesson 3.03 - HTML

  • Web sites are usually made up of 3 types of programming code:
    HTML, CSS and Javascript

    In this lesson you will learn the basics of HTML.

    HTML is referred to as a markup language because is uses tags to 'mark up' the page. Some of the tags are very similar to the commands used in word processing.  For example there are tags that will make text Bold or Italic, insert a bullet or number list, change the color of test, and create a heading or a new paragraph.
    HTML tags begin with < and end with >.
    Many tags come in pairs.  If you have tags that are in pairs, the closing tag starts with .

    This will create a heading

    If you created a website using Google Sites, your site actually uses HTML.
